In the next month, the United Nations will agree to Sustainable Development Goals intended to influence member state policies for 20 years. Sustainable cities is one of the policy goals under discussion, but many member states have not committed to support the cause. Because inclusion of an urban goal is very much in doubt, please educate yourself about this debate and consider signing on to support an urban sustainable development goal. Information and ideas on how to act now may be found at: http://urbansdg.org/
